The game has changed so much in the last few years, that the traditional back to the basket big is almost obsolete, in fact, a lot of coaches are trending more to the 6’7, 6’8 high motor athletic big as opposed to the traditional 7 footer. In this article, we take a look at 10 undersized west coast big men that fit that mold. 

  1. Takai Emerson-HardyTakaiEmerson-Hardy6'6" | PFVanden | 2022State 6’7 PF Vanden (CA) 2022 (#5PHNC 2022) - May have the most skill of any big on the list. TEH can score with his back to the basket, or off dribble drives. His value comes from his ability to use his quick second jump to rebound the basketball. 
  2. Jeremiah NyarkoJeremiahNyarko6'7" | PFSt. John Bosco | 2022State#72Nation 6’8 PF St John Bosco (CA) 2022 (#4PHSC 2022) - Big time R&J ability packaged in a solid frame. Easily hedge’s and switches ball screens and can get out in transition and score.
